Block firefix-esr-mobile-config from (re)installing itself
#1
The most recent Mobian update reinstalled firefox-esr-mobile-config overwriting my chosen settings for Firefox in the process. I have now removed the mobile config package.

How do I stop this package from ever reinstalling itself again?

Thanks in advance.

The debian command is "sudo apt-mark hold package_name".  I haven't tried it on the pine phone, but it should work.

Thanks. Does that also work for apt-get and Synaptic?

I remember "disabling" an update for a program in Synaptic (desktop linux) some time ago only to find that apt-get happily ignored the block in Synaptic and installed the update I thought that I had blocked.

It works for apt-get.  Synaptic is just a graphical front-end for apt, so it should also work for Synaptic.  I don't use Synaptic, so I have never tested it
